The Sexy Brutale Is a Murder Mystery with a Time Travel Twist

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of solving a good old-fashioned murder mystery. Danger lurks around every corner, and only your own wits can keep you alive. The Sexy Brutale presents a classic mystery, but with a unique twist: you can travel back in time and save would-be murder victims from an untimely demise.

The game takes place in The Sexy Brutale, a delightfully-named casino/mansion. As you progress through the game, the mansion’s conveniently masked guests will be picked off by a mysterious murderer (or murderers). Thankfully, none of these deaths have to be permanent. The game is built around a Groundhog Day-esque puzzle mechanic, which means you can roll back the clock at the end of the day. You’ll have to keep on repeating the same day until you are able to keep every guest alive. As you progress through the story, you’ll gain new abilities and learn more about the mansion’s dark secrets.

Being able to prevent murders should provide players with plenty of motivation. If the game kills off your favorite character, you don’t have to weep into your deerstalker cap. Instead, you can gather information and wait for the clock to roll back. When the day resets, you can find a way to save them from their deadly fate.

Murder stories can be grim and grisly, but The Sexy Brutale looks to be fairly lighthearted. This mansion may be filled with darkness, but the game itself looks like it’s heavy on charm. If you’ve ever enjoyed solving a murder — or love classic Bill Murray movies — you’ll want to give this adventure title a closer look.
